            Honors Lecture: To Boldly Go: The Final Frontier of Maritime Archaeology: James Delgado

            • Wednesday, Nov 14, 2018, 7-8 pm. Navajo Room, Kirk Center, Mesa Community College
            • Speaker: James Delgado
            • The lecture is an exploration of technology, and especially digital technology, in the ongoing quest to explore, map and understand the oceans and all that lies within them, with an emphasis on the role of shipwrecks and the past to inspire learning through connection, as it happens, with online, real-time exploration and research.
            • Dr. James P. Delgado’s career spans nearly five decades of investigating the past and sharing discovery and history with a global audience. Archaeologist, historian, journalist, educator, museum director, television host and government official, he often jokes that his career demonstrates his fundamental inability to keep a job. Actually, his professional journey has kept a focus on the past, especially our seafaring history. Passionately dedicated to exploration, for the past decade he has increasingly focused on deep ocean exploration, new technologies for reaching not only the deep but a worldwide audience through the use of robotic vehicles, satellites and the Internet to bring the public along with him as he explores the world miles below the surface of the ocean.

This allows people to get past heated debate and instead, consider the issue from multiple angles and find common ground for action.

                • Japanese Temple Geometry: During the Edo Period (1603 – 1867), Japan was isolated from the influence of western mathematics. Despite this isolation, Japanese mathematics, called Wasan, flourished and a unique approach to present mathematical problems was developed. Painted wooden tablets called sangaku were hung on display at Shinto Shrines and Buddhist temples. Over 900 tablets have been discovered with problems developed from priests, samurai, farmers, and children. The vast majority of these problems were solved using analytic geometry and algebraic means and the collection as a whole is frequently referred to as Japanese Temple Geometry. Mr. Fukagawa has brought several examples of sangaku tablets which will be available for viewing.
